[Solution] Default Browser stuck as Samsung Internet

Hello Samsung Community!
I recently updated to OneUI 4.1, and along with that my E-Sim has been activated! Yay!
However, soon thereafter, I noticed that links from other apps that would typically lead to my default browser, Kiwi Browser, now led to Samsung Internet. I was confused as I never used Samsung Internet. 

Here are the steps to regain control:
1) Open Settings > Apps
2) Find your Browser
3) Check that your browser is NOT DISABLED.
My phone said that Kiwi Browser was Disabled, and instead of saying "Uninstall" at the bottom, it showed "Turn On".
4) Turn the app BACK ON.
5) Clear the Browser's cache (Storage > Clear Cache)
6) Near the top, select "Browser App" and change it to your preferred browser that you reenabled.
7) Quit all of your apps (Close All)
😎 Enjoy!


Also,
Whenever you go through the prompts of "Discontinue use of Samsung Internet" and confirm, it does absolutely nothing. You can open Samsung Internet without needing to agree to the terms and conditions again. Quite odd.

Hope this helps anyone else who is having trouble.
